Nigerian town councillor calls for more recognition for foreign qualifications

Many immigrants with university degrees are being forced to work as cleaners or in factories, it has been claimed.

Nigerian-born member of Ennis Town Council, Cllr Taiwo Matthew called for a better system for recognising overseas educational qualifications in the country. The trained doctor became the first immigrant elected to a local authority, in 2004.

Non-Irish should not be allowed hold any political positions in Ireland.

This immigrant will obviously be fighting for the rights of other immigrants.

Don't they need doctors in Nigeria?

There is a serious brain-drain going on in third-world countries.

They are morally bound to take care of their own peoples.
